In his Learn Inbound talk, Ian explores how a true content workflow includes version management, asset management, and the ability to work on- and offline. You will learn to use some scary-looking but easy-to-use tools to create a bulletproof workflow that makes creating 10x content easier, faster, and more fun.
- The content workflow we use to write and create content for the internet dates back to the days of desktop publishing. There is a smarter way to do this by using Github and Markdown.
- Github allows you to track changes to a great level of detail than Microsoft Word and is a more optimal way to pass your work around a team for simultaneous revisions or contributions by lots of other people.
- A bulletproof workflow results in content that’s structurally sound that allow publishing in a fewer number of clicks. You can drop it into your website, blog, Google Docs or Word from a single source with very little time spent formatting.
